Can't help but smile upon your excellent comedic-but-fitting subject line! \:\)

The adventure was average in spite of issues below. It's good when we actually see Chamelion getting caught.

> Chamelion reveals that Hitman was dead before and was recently brought back (by Ben Reily during Clone Conspiracy) , Hitman devised a way of uploading his mind to a cloud and then put into a fresh body.
Somehow they slipped that crazy tidbit by the goalie just to keep the main story pace going.

> Peter's back is glowing, but it's actually the clairvoyant device, which was supercharged by the temporal explosion caused by Miguel last issue. Peter tries it out, looking for a possibility that could save his city from the vengeful Doom, he is tossed into a stream of possible futures which include the Next Avengers, the MC2 Universe, the future Spider-Man from the "Happy Birthday" arc and more. Peter meets Miguel's A.I Lyla and gets the help he needs, but they'll need the Chamelion to make it work.
The Clairvoyant deusexmachina was terribly lacking in exposition. Even the future timeline Easter Eggs could've been done clearer. And how was Lyla connected into the tech from the past? And judging how the attempt to save the day went down, who can even glean what 'grand solution' Peter got from scanning (with his mind only?) all the possible futures?? Not to mention, this was all done in ONE MINUTE??!!

> On a rooftop, Peter and Teresa seemingly offer Doom the Hitman, but he sees through the ruse, Hitman is Chamelion! Doom fires on the three of them and they're engulfed in a blast of light. To be continued

> My thoughts: Artwork's a little fudgy
That's being generous.

> but I did appreciate this issue for it's focus on brother/sister bonding,
Although, their sibling commitment continues to feel random and set aside for only selected arcs few and far between after 5 years in the MU. Spidey, seems just as close to Bambi, Candi, and Randi as Teresa so far. Indeed, telling her about their parents death was significant here. Now, when will we get some overdue May/Teresa bonding?

> the connective tissue to two very disliked storylines in Clone Conspiracy and Lifetheft, one recent and one twenty four years old, helped add additional layers to a much more interesting plot, proving that things needn't be ignored if they can be used in this fashion.
You're right about the continuity layering.

> I don't like being told to pick up the Omega issue of 2099 to have further clarity on the main arc, so I hope Spencer sticks the landing on the final part of this and does so in a way that can be enjoyed without having to fork out money for something extra.
It is very hard to believe that this could and should be able to wrap up in 1 more issue and that takes away anticipation for a good resolution. For some reason more deets/setup seems necessary. Maybe an 'aftermath issue' will help which is not solicited as part of the Omega solicit.
